For those that took the GMAT in the covid era, did you have to wear both a mask and gloves at the testing center? Or just a mask?

Stock market weatherman here! Jobless claims up more than 1M, lowest since April. A second wave of COVID is on the way, no vaccine in sight. Stimulus has stalled. Tensions with China escalate. Weather model says these signs point to sunny skies 🌞 Not a cloud in sight, only higher highs.
I have a gov law job with an offer to go to a great firm as a mid-level associate. Worried that if COVID continues, I’ll get laid off (much less likely at my gov job). Should I wait or go?
Do you think the economy is going to be bad in America for a while? I sort of feel like the down-sides from Covid haven't affected highly educated tech workers.
Trump’s efforts to suppress COVID19 info and rush our untested vaccines continues. His and Putin’s lackey, Caputo is now accusing CDC scientists of sedition. We need dump Trump on Nov 3, for the sake of our country. Folks who are not aware of Caputo - he actually worked for Putin as his PR consultant in Russia in early 2000s. Now his job is to sabotage the information coming out of CDC. Officially we have ~195k confirmed deaths but the number of excess deaths is over 250k (per Economist & NYT)
Should I move to NYC in the fall for graduate school or take classes remotely for the time being? Would be coming from a low Covid zone and would obviously quarantine for the first two weeks. Question is around whether you think it’s “worth it”. 1/3 of my classes will be held in person.
Anyone feel like it’s not worth working around the hours anymore? Hard to stay motivated knowing that bonus and raises are cut, and promos are only for rare cases. Understand covid really hit us hard, but I’m still working just as hard and as much (if not more)
Anyone else’s parents using guilt and bullying to get them to spend the holidays together when you don’t feel comfortable because of Covid? I sort of knew the I was the child of a narcissist but this confirms it.

A family member passed away recently and there’s an out of state funeral next weekend, obviously I’d like to attend and my family wants me there but seems like a bad idea with covid spiking again...
Has anyone received B1/B2 visa extension for their parents after COVID pandemic began? How much extension were you granted? How many days extension approval took from the date of filing?
How have folks' networth done during COVID? Has anyone else experienced pretty wild gains contrary to how the economy has done during this time, and how that makes you feel? My NW has nearly increased 25-30% YTD, wondering if anyone else is seeing similar. Feeling a bit guilty compared to how things have hit "main street"
Thoughts of applying late R3 vs R1 next year given the covid-19 outbreak issue, extensions of R3, and general admissions chances with all the uncertainty in the world?
I just started a role last month but a role I’m more interested popped up at a company I was interviewing at in March. I don’t want to seem like a job hopper because I truly am not one. This role more clearly aligns with my personal and career goals. Is it a bad look to reach out if the other one may have disappeared because of COVID? Is the risk worth the reward?

Just had an internal strategy interview. Interviewer, “I’ve never heard of Kearney / AT Kearney. What do they do?” Ex-Deloitte. My fish, are we not well known?
Given that people seem to be fleeing NYC, possibly long term, do you all think that this will create a substantial shift in the status quo of the legal profession? If the financial institutions switch to work from home long term or limit the amount of their workers in the city, will NYC still need to be the center of the legal profession or do you see other legal markets growing?

My company just started the GC process for me. We are working on the JD and whatnot. Question: for those of you who got GC, did your company petition for your current position as of then? Or did they petition for a future higher position? The reason I ask is because if we are petitioning for my current position, we cannot count my 3 years work experience from my current job at all, and only count the 2.5 years from 2018 and before.
The hours and travel in this job are ruining my relationship. While I realize my job is extreme and unreasonable, also don’t get why SO can’t just deal because my life is objectively harder. Thoughts?
